Thank-you to Lincoln Arts Festival Sponsors
The Lincoln Arts Festival provided a fun filled weekend made possible by generous corporate and individual support; we couldn't do it without a team of sponsors. We would like to show gratitude to Husker Auto our Event Sponsor. A special thanks goes out to Ameritas, who has sponsored the festival for three years, this year as the Patron Program Sponsor. Shopko Stores is also a returning sponsor with five years of support for the Lincoln Arts Festival. These corporate leaders truly understand the value of providing arts programming that is accessible to all, helping to create vibrancy in our community. We are so appreciative!
Approximately 600 kids enjoyed our Arts for Kids tent where they created buttons, robots, and paintings, and danced and sung alongside superstar Jim King. The Kinder Porter Scott Family Foundation has supported these activities for four years, bringing smiles to children and their families. New to sponsorship this year is the Sowers Club who also sponsored the Arts for Kids tent.
Live, local musicians entertained festival-goers thanks to the generosity of Sandhills Publishing, Madonna, Amtrak, Wells Fargo, Blue Cross Blues Shield of Nebraska, Grand Manse and U.S. Property, and the Berman Music Foundation. Thanks also to Catholic Health Initiatives for supporting the Patron Program. Target, Russ's Market, and Sam's Club of Lincoln provided in-kind support of artist hospitality.
On behalf of the Lincoln Arts Council board and staff, and the 13.000 people who attended the festival - THANK YOU!
